Above: We like the use of lab flask as a vase; the Erlenmeyer Flask (2000 mL) is $32.29 at The Grape and Granary. For a laboratory-inspired vase with a more organic feel, consider CB2's Lab Vase; currently $3.95. Photo via Etsy seller Ethan Ollie.
Whether you're following a recipe to a T or concocting your own chemistry project of a cocktail, these petite lab flasks will have you feeling like a drink genius! Or, if you're in a creative mood, you can use the beaker, round-bottom flask, and Erlenmeyer flask as vases, spice storage, or anything else your aptly original mind can think up.
Erlenmeyer Floor Lamp: Inspired by the flat-bottomed Erlenmeyer flask, this floor lamp has life beyond the lab. With the handcrafted steel collar encircling the thick blown-glass flask, it's an industrial design with an infused steampunk feel.
